MIAMI ART WEEK:
Art Basel has been a beacon for the Miami Art Scene since 2002. Since its onset, Miami and the Beaches have embraced the energy of the global art community. Numerous satellite shows, festivals, performances, gallery events and street art have exponentially spawned from this yearly convention in true Miami magical form.
Due to the pandemic, it is the first time that the official Art Basel Convention will not occur. In the spirit of Art Basel, Miami locals are not letting this stop the flow of artist expression this year.
This NFT exhibit in AltspaceVR is a component of a series of events organized by the XR-LABS Miami Community, and we are inviting the world to join us!
